Oily skin, blackheads, pimples... Acne-prone skin is a skin condition with many faces. It’s very common and mainly affects teenagers. But not just them...
Acne-prone skin is a disease of the hair follicle, where the hair takes root. At its base are the sebaceous glands which secrete sebum, an oily fluid whose normal function is to protect the skin and which is constantly flowing. But in the case of acne-prone skin, this well-oiled mechanism breaks down. The excessive secretion prevents the hair canal from flushing out the sebum. Bacterial growth is then promoted. 
However common it may be, acne-prone skin should not make us underestimate its impact on our quality of life and self-esteem. Why? Because it alters one’s body image at key moments in life and because it affects the face.

Oily skin

A shiny appearance, dilated and visible pores, uneven skin texture... What makes skin oily is excess sebum, the causes of which are most often hormonal. This hypersecretion of sebum occurs in the areas where there are the most sebaceous glands (face, chest, back, etc.). The main complication of oily skin is the appearance of blackheads, microcysts or pimples. It therefore deserves all your attention and requires adapted care.

Hormonal acne

Acne is widely considered a chronic skin condition that mainly affects adolescents, although epidemiological data shows that a significant number of adults over 25 years of age are also affected, especially women**.
